Spanish punk special-numero tres ” The Thrash Years”

Tuesday, May 16th, 2006

Spain has a rich history of punk that seems to go largely unappreciated except by those in the know. While the Spainards got a later start (’79-’80) than most other countries when it came to punk, they more than made up for it in the quality of the bands. ESKORBUTO, (las)VULPES and ESPASMODICOS represent a […]

HHH-Intelectual Punks (Dissonance) ‘86
HHH were one of Spains most beloved bands. Leading the pack of 2nd.wave punk/hardcore bands there, they turned their musical intrests towards the burgeoning worldwide thrash scene. Taking cues from the legendary early Spanish bands and combining that with hyper-speed playing, HHH’s music was raw, honest and definitely FAST.
The “intellectual […]

Formed in 1981 in Barcelona, these guys were among the many bands to forge the 2nd wave of “hardcore” in Spain. Their name is a bastardized version of gang green in Spanish. Besides releasing this 7″, they were featured on the infamous P.E.A.C.E. comp, released a […]
